15-55 Gallon Tank This is made for 15-55 gallon tanks. Unfortunately at the time of purchase, the product description didn’t state that so I found out when the package arrived and read it in big bold letters across the front of the package.Hope that pertinent info helps someone else not buy the wrong size vacuum!As far as the construction of the product – it looks great and bulb vacuums really do make cleaning the tank half the work.

Great and easy to use Product works great. For the people who say they can’t get it working try this:I believe the siphon bulb is one way, because it wasn’t working for me at first until I flipped it around.Also, start by filling the vacuum tube with water and holding it up until the hose is filled. Then re-submerge the tube and pump the bulb to start the siphon.I had never vacuumed a tank or siphoned anything before (I have a 60 gallon tank) and was able to use this without problems.

Works great – with a few hints This is a great product for me, but did come with a learning curve – not for the product/siphon itself, but how to make it work with my tank and its placement. I have a 75gal and a 100gal fish tank that are in my living room (not near a sink). This worked very well, but as someone said before, it moves water quickly, and without help, you have to stop the suction to dump the bucket. I bought some tubing at the local hardware store and a tubing adapter, attached these to the end of the siphon tubing – put it out a window and now it waters (and fertilizes my plants as I clean). My siphon also got rocks stuck in it, but doesn’t seem to pose any issues, just rattles and annoys me. Last but not least, I also had to turn the siphon bulb the other direction for it to properly work. Easy fixes, and now is a DREAM come true in helping clean two large tanks by myself.
